Naming The Twins

…is the harmonizing duo of Robbie Smith and Kathleen Glauser, whose well-matched voices sound a bit like Simon & Garfunkel if Art was a girl, a bit like Peter, Paul & Mary, if one of the boys was taking the night off, a bit like Gordon Lightfoot or Stan Rogers if they had had a girl harmonizer. Not twins by birth, but twins at heart, they share a sibling like sense of humour and harmony.

Here’s our latest video. We think there’s a pretty important message that we hope will get spread all over the globe.

Here’s what one viewer says:
“I love this song, and the video is an elegantly simple visual complement to its lyrics and music. The title written out in driftwood, buoys and scarves is pure genius, and there’s something about those pinwheels on the beach that gets me every time. They represent to me the ethereal nature of the ocean and the wind, joined with the interconnectedness of all who live here.”
